Phil Schiller Confirms White “iPhone” For Spring 2011


After numerous delays and production problems with the white iPhone 4, a spring 2011 date was finally locked down earlier this year. However even then, some users had their doubts that Apple could deliver on the mystical device.

One of the main reasons people doubt the release of the white iPhone 4 this spring 2011 is due to the proximity of the device’s release to the iPhone 5. If the white iPhone 4 was released this April or May, for example, that leaves approximately two months before the iPhone 5 launch.

iPhone 5 or not, to help out with the doubts, Apple Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller, via Twitter, confirmed that the “white iPhone” will be launching  spring of this year. Note however that he did not specifically say “iPhone 4” (could we see an early iPhone 5 launch this year?).

So there you have it. If you’ve been waiting for the white iPhone to be released, it’s only a few months (weeks?) away.

    He very much did not conform a white iPhone 4. He confirmed a white iPhone, that’s all. Engadget even said what phone it will be is up in the air.

  • Perhaps the white iPhone is going to be this budget iPhone we have been hearing about. Being last years model they just slash it by $100 from the iPhone 5. Find out we were all reading to much in to it heh

    It’s just ludicrous to release the white iPhone 4 this close to a product refresh (iPhone 5) who the hell is going to buy it (unless you’ve not a clue what going on in the world) when a new version is released in a few more weeks (as I’ve said in other comments). It would make so much more sense if the White iPhone is going to be the iPhone 5 which seems like it’s going to be the same unibody antenna design for the 5. Again much more sense than pumping all the money into a product release (even if it’s only colour) for something that will be “old” in a few weeks.

  • I have said the same thing in the past, but old stock needs to be sold too.
    I still think the White iPhone will be the budget iphone of this year (3Gs was last year) it only makes sense and helps sell off remaining stock. I guess we all have to sit and wait ^_^

    you gotta be an idiot if you have been waiting for the iphone for this long for a color.

    there is absolutely nothing wrong with black, as it is the iphones main color and color that everything thinks of when they think iphone.

    even if the white came out earlier, would have still gotton black, much more sharper and matches my mcabook pro better to 😀

    wont be upgrading to iphone 5 though, iphone 4 features are top of the line and im happy with it.

    Think different! White iPhone 5;)

  • There is still no news of the white iphone 4. I think people should consider alternatives such as upgrading their black iphone to white using a conversion kit as shown

  • Not impressed

    Apple is looking for attention again. Maybe they should start releasing thing when they say they will. I am super pissed that the white isn’t out yet. I have the black nut maybe some of is want to be different and not have the ” iconic” iPhone in black. I am beginning to not care about what they say. Losing credibility in my opinion.
